Quest 6: Creating Compelling Experiences Copy

Creating Compelling Experiences with Amy Jo Kim

Intrinsic motivation, personalization, and flow are integral to the design of a compelling experience.


By now you can imagine how today’s learners can achieve flow in a mastery learning system to become creative problem solvers fit for the Information Age.  This quest will teach you how to weave these concepts into a compelling experience for your world-savers. 


Game Guru and hit game designer Amy Jo Kim champions the importance of intrinsic motivation, mastery and flow as integral to game design.  To learn about Kim’s approach to gaming and learning, play the Amy Jo Kim “Creating Compelling Experiences” Text Quiz as or after you watch her Casual Connect presentation in Seattle, 2011.  For our purposes, it’ll be useful to imagine a “learner” every time she mentions a “gamer.”  As even Kim admits, learning is the drug that games offer.
